Newham district coach and Tunmarsh school teacher Terry Bobie Agyekum has started a new football club called Levels FC.

Agyekum has set up the club to give boys in East London – many of whom have never played for clubs – opportunity to receive good coaching and play and train in a safe environment.

The club aims to provide an elite service, giving them the opportunity to compete every week in one of the most competitive leagues in London.

They will have an under-11s and an under-13s team competing in the Echo League.

The coaching staff has been formed of ex-Newham school pupils, including Gabriel Obeng and Christian Owusu (Eastlea Community School), Gideon Asamoah (Royal Docks), Evans Duah (Langdon Academy) and Agyekum (Rokeby).

“I’m delighted to set up a club in East London and delighted that many of our Newham residents and pupils are a part of this,” Agyekum said.

“The coaches all being from Newham and ex-students in the borough is perfect.

“This way I know there will be a mutual understanding and we can relate to the boys of this borough.

“There is so much untouched talent in Newham and this is what spurred me to set up this club, especially within our under-13s.

“We aim to create a platform for our boys to shine and succeed – something which our boys have been shy from in the past.

“We have signed several boys from Kingsford School, St Bonaventure’s, Rokeby School, Forest Gate, Brampton Manor and Langdon Academy. Hopefully with our guidance we can have a few professional players and coaches come out of this.”

The under-13s have started the season well with back-to-back wins in their first two fixtures in the Echo League Premier Division.

They comfortably beat last season’s Echo A division champions Buckhurst Hill 10-0 in the opening game of the season, before sealing a 3-1 away win at LOASS.
